Actor Lee Si Eon confirmed to be dating actress Seo Ji Seung

1. [+13237, -183] I Live Alone but sometime we live together

2. [+8516, -89] Mujigae daebak (t/n: 'Mujigae' means 'rainbow', that's the name of their club on 'I Live Alone')

3. [+7804, -185] *screams* daebak!! I hope we can soon hear good news from Narae and Kian, and also Henry ^^ 

4. [+5567, -99] Wow uhljang-nim congratulations!!! (t/n: Lee Si Eon, Kian84, and Henry are known as 3얼간이 - uhlgan-ie, which means 'three idiots/dummies', it's kind of a wordplay on the word 'uhljjang' which means 'best face' and he's the "leader" of the three idiots/dummies so it can be a combo of the word uhlgan-ie with the Korean word for boss/leader/captain LOL)

5. [+4208, -75] Congratulations~~

6. [+1509, -33] But why do they have to leave? It's not they're getting married, they're just dating...There's no change to him living alone 

7. [+1147, -19] I saw them at Gimpo but acted like I didn't notice them ㅋㅋㅋ to cheer them on ㅋㅋㅋ but I still wrote about seeing them (t/n: someone made a post about seeing them in Gimpo while they were shopping)    
↪ [+296, -3] They didn't just start dating, it's been a couple of years ㅋㅋㅋ It's well-known that they go shopping together, Lee Si Eon was wearing a mask and I saw them a couple of times walking around with couple shoes 
↪ [+163, -2] True~ they didn't just start dating~ In the past, Lee Si Eon said he had a girlfriend but no one believed him ㅋㅋ 
 [+121, -2] It's been a couple of years. It was already known in the Gimpo neighborhood. 

8. [+955, -7] Yesterday on Jun Hyun Moo's dating article, someone commented that Lee Si Eon was in a relationship... They said that and said it's a girl that came out in 'Banolim 2' and then an article immediately came out ㅋㅋㅋㅋ interesting

Han Hye Jin and Jun Hyun Moo confirm that they're dating

1. [+10646, -100] Daebak congratulations

2. [+8375, -89] Hul so it was true!! Congratulations

3. [+6625, -88] Congratulations!!!!!

4. [+6196, -109] Really congrats ^^ they match well~~~

5. [+5965, -103] Hul I knew this would happen ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Congratulations~^^ 

6. [+2028, -43] They should've respected their privacy.. Because they filmed them unknowingly, they couldn't help but confirm it.. just how long do you think they were dating? (t/n: the commenter is saying they were caught too early when their relationship is just starting) Don't be a stalker and do this 

7. [+1599, -35] It feels like I'm looking at a college campus couple..... What's going to happen to the show if they break up... ㅠ The reason people said not to get close was because of this but it ended up coming true.... ㅎ 
↪ [+100, -5] They can get married and live separately 

8. [+1476, -44] Congratulations. But is there a way we can sue 'The Fact'? They went a bit overboard. 

9. [+1125, -25] Have a pretty relationship and if it's possible, I hope it's a relationship that leads to marriage 

10. [+838, -22] The pictures were undeniable ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 

I'm so happy for them and I hope things end nicely for them
But not going to lie... 
I thought she looked really cute with Lee Si Eon LOL

[from ddoboja] Greetings! What I've Been Watching + What I've Been Listening To [二月]

I noticed there were a lot of new readers recently so I just wanted to introduce myself (◍•ᴗ•◍)
I go by as ddoboja and welcome to my blog! ~(˘▾˘)~
My translations are mostly focused on Korean dramas, actors, and variety shows
I'll occasionally translate things about KPOP, non-Korean things (e.g. Hollywood films), and the requests readers make

I'm a college student so there might be times where I'll be slow at updating but I usually try to post at least 2-3 posts a day so let's pray that I continue that routine LOL 
I do translations for fun, it's not a job or anything so sometimes there might be translation/grammatical errors or differences on how I perceived the comment so please understand if there's any mistakes~ I'm human too hehe ㅠㅠ 
I try to post a lot of positive things because who wants negativity? LOL 
I hope you guys can be friends and just have fun discussions with each other (◍•ᴗ•◍)

I wanted to create a series on my blog where we take a break from all the serious celebrity/drama news
I just wanted to share personal things with you guys such as: what I've been watching lately, what songs I've been obsessed with, etc
In my last blog announcement post, I brought up this idea and people seem to be up for it
sooo I hope you guys like it and we can continue this as a monthly thing~ (´͈ ᵕ `͈)

D R A M A S + F I L M S


Tbh I only wanted to watch this because I heard my man Ha Jung Woo was going to come out but I ended up loving the movie because of the whole cast ㅠㅠ
It's a heavy plot and it felt more personal to me because I'm Korean and these events were something my parents actually went through when they were barely in their 20s... 
A lot of my parents' friends participated in the protests and were activists.
I recommend it those who enjoy political movies but the plot's pace felt a bit wonky and maybe the director planned it out like that because the actual events were really hectic...  

Here's him singing with Kim Tae Ri for the 1987's OST - Link

<신과함께Along with the Gods>

As you can tell... 
I'm a huge Ha Jung Woo fan LOL 
All the actors I like are ahjusshis (≧▽≦)ノシ
This movie was really memorable and became one of my all time faves ㅠㅠ 
Please take tissues with you when you go watch it...
The film will make you think back on your life and reflect on how you treat your parents, siblings, friends, and just yourself as well. 
Also Kyungsoo made me cry ㅠㅠ


You guysssss omg... 
Not only is Misty scandalous and full of HOT scenes (˵ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°˵)
Go Hye Ran (t/n: Kim Nam Joo's character) is straight up g o a l s
Her character doesn't take shit from anyone and she's so calculated, I love it~
She kind of reminds me of Olivia Pope from 'Scandal'.  
I'm a bit tired of Ji Jin Hee tho because he always plays the same mopey characters
His aura/vibe is so pitiful ㅠㅠ 


Okay, so I'm a huge fan of the original Japanese version of this drama
Ashida Mana had me crying during every episode and she was only 6 years old when she came out in this drama ㅠㅠ 
I was really excited when I found out that they were making a Korean remake and thought Lee Bo Young was a good fit for the role
I honestly don't like how they're handling the plot. 
In the Japanese version, the main focus was revolved around the theme of mothers/motherly love/motherly bonds with their children, but in the Korean version, they're focusing a lot on side characters (e.g. Lee Jae Yoon, Son Seok Koo) and romance.
Also after the recent episode, I really didn't like how they barely delved into why Hye Na's mom (Ko Sung Hee) started to neglect her child. 
Like she wasn't always a bad mom! That past story was sooo important ㅠㅠ
I don't know, I'm thinking of dropping this one, tbh but I also want to see how they wrap these whole thing up especially because they're not following the original material scene by scene. 


「DAY6 - If ~また逢えたら~」

OMG this is the first DAY6 song I've ever listened to and it is such BOP!
Personally, I thought this was a really well-done Japanese debut
If any of my readers are DAY6 fans, please recommend me some more of their songs (preferably the same vibes to this song)!

「IU - Palette」

I know, I know~ 
I'm suuuuuper late at listening to this song 
(⸝⸝•́ 。•̀⸝⸝)
BUT I LIKE IT~ (whispers: I'm 25)
LOL I'm not even 25 but this song is so catchy and it's such a good song to listen to during the morning when you're getting ready or studying
It's just perfect to listen to whenever!


Every track just flows smoothly and each one is a b o p!
No lie, I seriously think I listen to 'Text Me' every single day LOL

「関ジャニ∞ // KANJANI8」

So... the last time I was into JPOP was like in 2009 lol 
The only member I knew in KANJANI8 was Nishikido Ryo because he came out in a bunch of J-dramas I used to watch
But clips from their variety show, Kanjani Chronicle, went viral on Korean Twitter because some of the members played a game where they had to play the telephone game with English phrases with foreign guests and at the end, the last member needs to deliver and translate the phrase successfully. 
After watching the clip, I started stanning them ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
Their songs are soooo good but I prefer their rock/ballad songs over their dance-pop ones!
The songs I would recommend are: Street Blues, ツブサニコイ (Tsubusa ni Koi), and モノグラム (Monogram)! 

So those are some of the things I've been watching and listening to this month~
What have you guys been watching, who are some of your favorite actors/actresses?
Do you guys listen to any other genres besides KPOP?
Can't wait to hear back~

Well then... this is the end for today!
우리 또 보자~
(t/n: let's meet again~; uri ddoboja~)

Kian84, Lee Si Eon & Henry display their strong friendship on 'I Live Alone'

1. [+4472, -161] Lee Si Eon and Henry seem like angels 

2. [+3503, -203] When the 3 Dummies gather together, it'll end up being fun no matter what ㅋㅋㅋ  

3. [+2801, -184] The dummies are weirdly charming 

4. [+2595, -189] I'm supporting you 3 Dummies ^^

5. [+1279, -44] CEO Park.. Please open a cooking class and save those who can't cook to save their lives... Last time you cooked food for Hyun Moo-hyung's housewarming party, at least do a class on side dishes so people can survive to eat ㅜㅜ 

6. [+683, -31] Henry's smile looks honest 

7. [+640, -84] Ah this is so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ the hammer ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: Kian84 was told by Kim Poong (he's also a webtoon artist but comes out on cooking programs like Please Take Care of My Fridge) to buy a meat hammer but Kian84 bought an actual hammer and it was small too LOL)

8. [+765, -235] All the snowflakes can just watch a different channel, it's not like they caused an inconvenience to your society

9. [+595, -104] They're really innocent and cute.. I really like the members of this show

10. [+536, -50] Rather than paying attention to Kian's cooking, I liked the fact that he had friends who understood where he came from and had a good time with him. Seeing them three take care of each other and praise each other makes them look like really good friends.

[Friday Variety Roundup] I Live Alone, Youn's Kitchen Season 2

1. [+4568, -61] Instead of giving her a translator, I wish she had an exclusive manager. I felt bad because of the food delivery and the coldness ㅠㅠ (t/n: the boiler in her apartment keeps malfunctioning and she's so cold that she wears her padding jacket inside her apartment)

2. [+4336, -68] Special treatment my ass.. the translator is hella frustrating.. she's one of the top players in the world but because her boiler is broken, she couldn't shower nor make food what is up with that ㅋㅋ her translator behaves as if she's her friend, was she provided to her by China, how is a sports translator like that ㅋ first time seeing something like that and she's a one of the world-class players 

3. [+3443, -32] She showered with cold water in that cold weather;;; 

4. [+3182, -38] Making the athlete suffer because of the cold... at least, turn the boiler on well for her 

5. [+1806, -52] Her personality is good and her skills are good 

6. [+1070, -10] They say the translator is nice but she doesn't seem nice.. because Kim Yeon Koung is a bit short-tempered, she makes it obvious that she's annoyed when Kim Yeon Koung tells her something so whenever she has the opportunity, she talks back.. she sneakily teases her ㅠ.. When Kim Yeon Koung told her only cold water comes out, she said: "But you like cold water~" what the... If I was her, I would've asked for them to change translators right away.. Kim Yeon Koung isn't the type to not say anything so she always expresses things but she just seems to be bearing it and not saying anything.. 

7. [+1054, -28] The translator ㅡㅡ I get that she's nice but she's totally a pest... pests like that are all usually nice.. ah oh sweet potatoes my blood pressure . Kim Yeon Koung is a saint, if it was me, I would've already asked them to change translators 

1. [+8777, -385] Stop saying the portions are small ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's in Europe, they're tourists, and the prices are obviously expensive, the other restaurants they checked out and ate at had small portions too but they were actually more pricier? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ They always talk about the globalization and gentrification of Korean cuisine but in actuality they always yap on about how expensive it is and how small the portions are but if they go to a high-quality restaurant and pay a lot for a steak that's the size of a baby's fist, they'll just suck it up and enjoy the meal 

2. [+6643, -294] Seriously this is something I always feel but I want to go there and mix the bibimbap for them ㅋ With bibimbap, you have to really mix it up and take a big bite out of it so that it's really yummy but they eat it as if it's a salad so I feel like they're not experiencing the feel charm of bibimbap so I always feel bad ㅋ

3. [+4367, -83] The baby mama who's wearing the sunglasses has a really refreshing smile, it remains in my memories because it's so pretty.. the baby is really cute too.. ㅎ

4. [+2449, -141] The result of hard work~~ of course ㅋㅋ

5. [+1897, -145] Obviously, this is already their nth episode ㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+605, -93] I think the opening ceremony had an impact~~ still it's a high figure

2. [+535, -67] The opening ceremony was really fun. Fantastic, it doesn't feel like a waste even though I pay to watch this channel. The opening ceremony was really well done.....

3. [+500, -134] It's becoming more and more frustrating. I do tune in but I do other things ㅋㅋ

4. [+628, -356] It's no longer a healing program. At some point, it started getting frustrating so I don't want to watch it anymore. By habit, I tuned in but then I realized what I did and changed the channel. Whether it's fun or not, the show is frustrating. The people who want to watch can continue to watch and the people who don't want to, don't need to. 

5. [+283, -45] It was fun up until episodes 1 and 2 but this season it feels too long and the content is all the same 

6. [+195, -28] Having experience from working at a restaurant, Youn's Kitchen is at the same level of playing house. They don't even have a lot of tables but get flustered and it's hella frustrating to watch them making only one serving portions, they barely had 13 customers in groups yesterday ..

Park Narae says she wasn't thinking straight when she brought up the marriage pledge with Kian84

1. [+1614, -67] 'I Live Alone' saved the MBC Entertainment Awards ㅋㅋ 

2. [+1270, -66] I like the current members lineup's chemistry on 'I Live Alone' the best ㅋㅋ

3. [+1104, -45] ㅋㅋ Narae corgi is god's work (t/n: Lee Si Eon gave her this nickname)

4. [+757, -55] Chairman Jun, CEO Park, Dhalsim, 3 Idiots, be successful

5. [+752, -55] Is this why you should get married when you're not in the right state of mind?? ㅎㅎㅎ 

6. [+160, -7] I feel like I wasn't in my right mind too when I was dating my husband...

[Friday Variety Roundup] I Live Alone, Youn's Kitchen

1. [+2647, -19] "Alien guy" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱㄱㅋ I was wondering what she was talking about

2. [+2335, -80] Henry is also handsome and his sister kind of gives off the same vibes as BLACKPINK's Jennie. Henry family's superior DNA~

3. [+2068, -37] Honey really drips out of Henry's eyes whenever he looks at his sister 

4. [+1888, -41] His sister is so charming and her voice is so cute

5. [+1235, -59] She's like Amber ㅎㅎ
↪ [+227, -10] Same! As soon as I saw her, I thought she looked like Amber

6. [+407, -19] Henry's younger sister is glamorous and cute~

1. [+1009, -32] His sister is pretty too

2. [+908, -8] While watching, I kept thinking this was a pair of siblings in a fantasy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ these types of siblings isn't common

3. [+561, -12] Both of them are so cute~~^^

4. [+405, -8] Henry^^

5. [+321, -12] The Lau siblings are the best ♥♥

1. [+8826, -180] They should at least assign numbers to the table and then take orders... The German table waited way too long ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Me just watching, I was getting frustrated ㅠㅠㅠ You should share the orders that got cancelled too ㅠㅠ hing

2. [+7321, -291] I was getting really frustrated while watching.. I wish they would communicate more

3. [+5492, -305] So fucking frustrating.. sigh

4. [+4765, -108] It's annoying.. ㅠㅠ

5. [+4119, -301] Fucking frustrating 

6. [+3003, -29] Why do they only flip two kimchi pancakes at a time? If the orders are backed up, they can flip 4 at a time.. It's driving me nuts because of how frustrating it is.

7. [+2354, -47] Did you edit it this way so that the viewers can get stressed?

8. [+2324, -37] Even if it's a reality tv show, it's not even in Korea, the production crew and staff should at least help them out. These types of situations aren't even fun, it's just frustrating

9. [+2344, -98] Can't they catch the drift if they see an empty table? The German table even ordered first

10. [+2223, -25] The frustrating thing is they can just flip all the kimchi pancakes together and fry the eggs all at once in the fry pan with 4 holes but why do they only make one order at a time? Creating a mess~ ㅠㅠ
